The performance wasn’t too pretty all the way through, but the Wallabies have nonetheless started their 2019 World Cup with a 39-21 win over Pool D opponents Fiji.
The Pacific Islanders were the better side in the first half, only for Australia to find their composure in the second stanza to run out comfortable winners.
But you already know that. What we want to know is how you think each of the Aussies fared on the pitch – it’s time to give them each a rating based on their performance against Fiji.
If you’ve not done our DIY player ratings before, it’s a simple enough process. Hit up the form below and rate each player from 1 to 10 based on how well they played. We’ll keep track of the results and publish our findings tomorrow.
